As an Anti-gay oppressor
For those of you who love their waffle fries, nuggets, and chicken sandwiches (and yeah I’m guilty as charged on that), consider this the next time you’re making your choices of how to spend your hard earned rainbow dollars and t-bills at a local neighborhood fast food restaurant.
Chik-Fil-A president and COO Dan Cathy finally came out of the closet about the chain being anti-gay.
“Well, guilty as charged.” Cathy flippantly said in an interview with the Baptist Press.
It was obvious there was a problem based on their WinShape Foundation donations to anti gay groups such as Exodus International ($1,000), The
Family Fascist Research Council ($1,000) and $1,188,380 to the Marriage and Family Foundation
But the pushback from the rainbow community is just as strong. I suggested that Chik-Fil-A franchises be protested by rainbow community members for their anti-same gender
Maybe the process can get started by having sit-ins, kiss-ins, pray-ins featuring liberal-progressive pastors and gay couples
walking into their various locations dressed in wedding attire.
I’m just sayin’.
In addition to the scathing commentary coming from the rainbow blogosphere about Cathy’s homobigoted comments, in February Northeastern University halted plans to open a Chik-Fil-A restaurant on its campus.
An online petition created by NYU freshman student Hillary Dworkowski has garnered over 5,000 signatures and calls for the school to close its Chik-Fil-A franchise that is reportedly the only one in Manhattan.
So yep, it’s on between the rainbow community and Chik-Fil-A and I’ll have to get my chicken sandwiches from Mickey D’s for the foreseeable future.
